Guide to Shopping in Vegas: Top Five Shopping Destinations for Spring 2014

Las Vegas isn’t just the ultimate destination for gambling and partying - the shopping is pretty much unsurpassed as well. Shopaholics will be delighted by the sheer size and scope of the miles of malls, boutique stores and outlets. In fact there are so many stores to tackle that it can seem a bit intimidating to try and narrow down which ones to fit into your Las Vegas itinerary. Get those credit cards ready, as EarlyVegas has the inside info on the must-see shopping destinations in Las Vegas.

The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace Las Vegas: These shops are a Las Vegas staple, and the Ancient Roman-inspired decor, talking statues and marble columns personify the over-the-top glitz and gaudiness of the Vegas strip. Stop in at this Las Vegas shopping mecca and have your pick of a mix of typical fashion mall shops and more high-end and exclusive to Vegas options. Bargain hunt at H&M, or admire the girly and 1950’s-inspired creations at Nanette Lepore’s boutique. If you’re hungry after all of the taxing walking and Las Vegas shopping, this center has a great assortment of more casual and Las Vegas fine dining options to choose from.

The Wynn Esplanade: Be prepared to fall in lust at this classy assortment of high-end designers at the iconic Wynn, one of the nicer hotels in Vegas. Indulge in a little luxury at one of the stores like The Outfit, which stocks quirky high-end designers as Zac Posen, or window-shop to your heart’s content at Shoe In where you can fantasize about or try on a pair of Christian Louboutins. Stock up on some bath and beauty essentials at Apothecary which has an overwhelming amount of niche products to choose from. If you hit the jackpot playing slots at one of the Casinos the night before, splurge on one of the fancy designer bags at Bags, Belts and Baubles. Even if you didn’t rake in the winnings, we won’t tell if you treat yourself to a little Las Vegas souvenir.

Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas: For the best bargains in town (like 75% OFF designer fashions) head to the polar opposite of the Wynn... the Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas. This gigantic outlet center is a little ways out of central Las Vegas in the nearby town of Primm, Nevada but is well-worth the trip; they even provide a shuttle service that links up with many of the Las Vegas hotels on the strip to make transportation easier and more cost-effective. Savvy shoppers can track down some great steals at one of the 100+ outlet stores including Banana Republic, William Sonoma, Quiksilver and the Gap. Score an additional discount at various stores that offer coupons that you can find on the Outlet website.  If you are an AAA or CAA member, bring your card for additional savings... go to the customer service desk and receive a FREE Green Savings Card!

The Fashion Show Mall: This Las Vegas shopping center is a big production, with flashing lights, futuristic architecture and fashion runway shows. It is conveniently located on the strip next to other fun things to do in Las Vegas, and has every store imaginable on its premises. Like many other Las Vegas attractions, this shopping mall does get very crowded in the spring and summer months, so be prepared for hordes of tourists, or try and go at an off-hour.

The Grand Canal Shoppes: This series of charming stores is situated in mega-casino The Venetian, and the artificial blue waterway and straw-hatted gondoliers will make you feel transported to Italy. Some of the stores have a Venice theme such as GG Santi Venezia which offers delicious European chocolates in unusual shapes and sizes, and Ripa De Monti, which sells delicate hand-crafted Venetian glass items.
